How long ago did you take the antibiotics? Sometimes your gut bacteria take a while to bounce back, and you can feel cruddy for a few months in the interim, but then even out. Probiotic and prebiotic foods and supps are probably a good idea.
What kind of health problems are you having after them? There are some really serious health issues you can have after them like developing necrosis of the intestine which would make you really sick and absolutely needs to be followed up with a doctor or an ER visit. Or you can just throw off your bacterial balance a bit and end up with a short term or long term fungal overgrowth, weight gain, or anemia, depending on what kind of bacteria took the strongest hit.
If you think you have a systemic candida infection after antibiotics, Diflucan is a freakin' miracle drug in my opinion.
